restraint order solicitors

When you are being investigated for committing a criminal offence, you may have your assets frozen, meaning you have limited access to bank accounts and other property. This can make it difficult for you to go on living your life as normal or continuing to run a business. At Burton Copeland, our solicitors assist individuals and companies by challenging the viability of a restraint order.

If you have been accused of a crime and had a restraint order placed against you, it is important you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible so a case for your defence can start to be built. Contact us today by calling 0161 827 9500, or fill in our online form to let us know you would like to hear from us.

what is a restraint order?

A restraint order prohibits someone accused of a crime from accessing certain assets during a criminal investigation. This can include:

  • Withdrawing money from a bank account
  • Selling a property

The purpose of restraint orders is to preserve assets and property so that if a confiscation order is made by the court, it can be satisfied.
